Party Pages: Rufus and Martha Wainwright, Jorn Weisbrodt and more at Sunday night’s hottest Luminato after-party

On Sunday night, after Rufus Wainwright sang his heart out to a massive crowd at David Pecaut Square for Luminato, the Shore Club was the hot spot for his friends and family. Soon-to-be husband Jorn Weisbrodt arrived sporting a fitted blazer with impressive lapels, while a post-performance Wainwright came sweaty and casual. Wainwright’s sister Martha was spotted having a hearty laugh with musician Teddy Thompson. The elegant and poised aunt to the Wainwrights, Anna McGarrigle, captured everyone’s attention with her warm smile and glossy greyed hair. Other guests included Wainwright’s dear friends, fellow musicians Sarah Slean and Royal Wood, Reg Vermue and more. Sadly, K’naan and Jake Gyllenhaal decided to skip the after-party. They were probably too full from the dinner they had at Terroni earlier.
